LSU lost a commitment from talented four-star 2020 defensive tackle McKinnley Jackson this week.

There were rumbling on Wednesday that Jackson had reopened his recruitment and he confirmed the news with a Twitter announcement on Thursday.

Jackson, a 6-2, 280-pound prospect from Lucedale, MS (George County HS) originally gave his commitment to Ed Orgeron while visiting campus for the Texas A&M game this past season. His departure means that LSU does not have any verbal commitments for the class of 2020, for now.

Jackson is rated the No. 3 defensive tackle in the country and the No. 1 overall player from Mississippi, according to 247Sports' 2020 rankings. He already holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Ole Miss, and Florida State, among others.

When a kid commits two years in advance, it's a given that there's a decommitment these days.

Thanks for the rational answer. This happens all the time but there will be plenty of people attacking Orgeron over this. LOL!

Why do we even post when a kid commits? Commit means nothing, especially two years out.
